Guess who's back?

Season 11 of American Horror Story has set its cast and is shaping up to be a must-see. AHS alums Billie Lourd, Zachary QuintoPatti LuPone and Isaac Powell set to return to the series for the new season. Sandra BernhardJoe Mantello and Charlie Carver, who've all appeared in other Ryan Murphy productions, round out the cast.

As usual, details about the upcoming season are few and far between, but the cast was photographed filming in New York's West Village this week. Eyewitnesses spotted Lourd, Powell, Bernhard and Carver dressed in ensembles from the '70s and '80s, with the sets matching their aesthetic. 

But given that this is AHS, something sinister—and likely murderous—is certainly afoot.

AHS fan accounts suspect this upcoming season will touch on the Son of Sam's reign of terror in the late '70s. The serial killer, whose real name was David Berkowitz, murdered six people, wounded seven others and sent letters taunting police from 1976 until his capture in 1977.

Over the course of the first 10 seasons, AHS explored horror all over the country, so it's only fitting Murphy would finally land in the Big Apple.

This update comes after FX chairman John Landgraf announced Aug. 2 that season 11 will premiere this fall, though he declined to share further details, including the premiere date and episode titles.

While fans have been holding out hope that longtime AHS staple Sarah Paulson will return to the twisted world this season, it seems the actress is taking a break from the franchise. She told Variety Aug. 2, "It's not that I'm not open to it. I'm always open to it, but I feel like I've been doing it for a long time, and people might start getting sick of me in that world. Let someone else scream and run and cry for a second. Other people can do that too!"

The good news is fans can still see Paulson in past seasons of American Horror Story, streaming now on Hulu.
